Get Colorful in The New River Gorge
Have you ever done a color run? These events are super fun and anyone is able to participate! We’ve designed a 5K (3.1 mile) course utilizing roads and trails at ACE Adventure Resort. Along the way racers are covered from head to toe with a colored powder. Racers will get a goodie bag including your official white Color Dash for Hope t-shirt that we encourage you to wear during the run as you get doused with color. Prizes will be awarded for top finishers and everyone who crosses the finish line will get a Color Dash for Hope medal.
Spend the Whole Day at ACE
Stick around after the run for a fun day at ACE Adventure Resort. All participants get a free burrito buffet after the run. Plus the Adventure Waterpark is the perfect way to spend an August afternoon. The Lost Paddle has food and tasty drinks all day and there will be live music that evening outside on the deck. ACE also has camping and cabins available if you are looking to make it a weekend.
Hope in the Hills
The Color Dash for Hope will benefit Hope in the Hills in their mission to end opiate addiction.
